I'm trying to use the non-portable EXE installer for SLADE3, downloaded from its homepage, but I get this error.

Does it lack the privilege to write within Program Files (x86)?

If I click Ignore, it will show the same error for each file, until the installation "completes". But actually, no SLADE3 folder appears within Program Files (x86).

I already have a SVN build of SLADE3 unzipped to C:\SLADE3, but I want to be a better behaved citizen this time.

Why not just install it to a different directory? I put mine (even though it doesn't work) into C:\Users\(my name)\DOOM

Because I want to put it in Program Files (and that's the default destination).

There is an installer? Things I learned in this topic...

Make sure that your current version of SLADE3 is not open. Right click the installer file and check if it is being "blocked". Try "Run as administrator". If that fails then try to install outside of /Program Files/. Also, make sure you're on an admin account.

Out of interest, what's wrong with using the portable version? :)

Nothing. But the installer might do some nice stuff like associating WADs with SLADE3 (not sure if it was really happening in this case), as well as put the program in the correct Program Files folder along with the other Windows programs. I know I can do it manually, but why so when it can be done by installing.

Sure. See here: second row

EDIT: Looks like indeed I had to run it as administrator, which is odd, because I am one. It didn't associate WAD files with it, but I still got a nice button in the Start screen. So yeah, here's a benefit of using an installer.

Simply because you had difficulty installing. Glad to have helped resolve that though.

That sounds like User Account Control (id set up UAC bases on Windows vista and after). It can be disabled from Control Panel so you never get hassle from it or from programs requiring admin rights, but that's not recommended of course. If that's not what it is then somebody chime in and correct me.

As for association with wad files: "open with"...

No, it wasn't because UAC was on. My UAC is currently off.

Could it be due to something you inadvertently downloaded from Realm667?

Well, the doom builder 2 installer worked. I wouldn't rush to think that my system is compromised. I guess I'd better reactivate that UAC thingie.

Might be that what I used to build that old installer doesn't properly support windows 8 or uac, or something like that. I'll probably use something different for the next version.

Probably just needs an appropriate manifest embedded. Nullsoft Install System takes care of that shit for you, so long as it is properly instructed.
